WHY YOU SHOULD CARE: Your favorite Swedish crooner can sing a sad tale in the desert as proven by this new clip!
"I'm not a smart man, but I know what love is," Forrest Gump said once to the love of his life Jenny. Apparently Jens Lekman learned a thing or two as he suffered the biggest heartbreak of his life, becoming the impetus for his new album, cleverly titled I Know What Love Isn't.
On the latest single, Jens does what he does best as he transform a real life experience into song. "Become Someone Else's" tells a tale of never wanting to let go, never becoming the soul mate of another person. Lekman's outlook on a love life is so unique: sure, other bands write sad lyrics to go with a happier melody, but Jens always has a good sense of humor about things, always quick to make himself the butt of a joke. But on "Else's" he's a bit more sincere, more honest than ever before.
Here's the new video for "Become Someone Else's", featuring Jens wearing a nice hat and taking a stroll through the desert, the loneliest place a man could be.
